Walsall defender Dan Scarr has called on the Saddlers to raise their standards ahead of tomorrow’s clash against Mansfield Town.
The defender returned from suspension during Tuesday’s 2-0 defeat at Oldham Athletic.
Scarr feels the team need to stick together and help push each other harder to get back to winning ways.
“I think we need to raise our standards,” said Scarr.
“We need to push each other a little bit more, stick together and get ourselves out of it.
“You’ve got to be mentality strong and work hard for each other. I think we can work a little bit harder and go that extra mile for each other so if we start doing that I think we’ll get ourselves out of it.”
The 24-year-old is looking forward to Saturday’s match against Mansfield and he’s hoping the Saddlers can use the game as a catalyst for a change in form.
“We have a home game coming up so we need to take the game to them and use this as a turning point,” he commented.
“It needs to be a turning point so we’ll grind it out in training and look forward to Saturday.”
Mansfield has a handful of former Saddlers players in their squad. Andy Cook, who scored 18 goals for Walsall last season, is likely to feature against his former teammates and Scarr is prepared to deal with his threats.
“We know what his attributes are,” he said.
“He’s big, strong and he scores goals so he’s definitely someone to keep an eye on.
“Players come and go, some players want to leave and you don’t have control over that so you just get on with it.”
